------- Original comment by Mark J. Cox (Security Response Team) on 2005.01.25
The moxa char driver is missing a CAP_SYS_RAWIO check which could allow a local
user the ability to do things like replace the firmware. This is already fixed
in 2.4-bk and in 2.6.10-ac7 from Alan Cox (although it's ommitted from 2.6.10-ac10).
A fix for this has been committed to the RHEL2.1 source tree for inclusion in
the next security errata.
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
